Like most theme parks by purchasing your tickets online can help you save some much need £££’s. You may not think a £1.00 per person is much but when you think that the average family has two children then by purchasing a Group of 4 ticket you are saving £4.50 enough to buy you all an ice cream.

Upon entering the park you are greeted with a large graveled areas which I assume is used for displays and shows though the year, however there was nothing planned in this area during our visit. Handing Roo the map she decided that we should head right to The Jolly Roger.
Carousel – I don’t think a theme park would be complete without a carousel. One of the few rides that Tigger was happy to go on. So whilst Roo rode a horse, Mummy and Tigger enjoyed sitting inside a giant shell watching the world go by around us.
Mini Railway – There are two train rides available on the park, the mini railway was the first ride that Tigger really got excited about. Taking us on a journey around the park, through the woods and under some tunnels Tigger really enjoyed it (so much so that he cried when we came off). This soon became a firm favourite and I think Tigger would have sat on there all day if he was allowed.
Wipeout – One of Pleasurewood Hills newest rides, just looking at it made me feel nauseous it. Watching it whizzing along at 50mph was good enough for us so felt we didn’t need to experience it first hand.
Sea Lion Show – Whilst Roo and Mr Boo were enjoying the delights of Timber Falls, I opted to take Tigger to see the Sea Lion Show. We were not disappointed, watching Claude and George preform a variety of tricks was really entertaining.
Veteran Cars – I was pleased to see that they had kept an old favourite, the Veteran Cars from when I used to visit as a child. Tigger insisted on being the driver so poor Roo was a little put out but after explaining that he hadn’t been on many rides it was only fair to let him drive she was OK.
As well as the above mentioned rides there are a number of other rides that we enjoyed, more details on ride available can be found here.
There are toilets and baby changing facilities dotted around the park and like most well used facilities they are a little worn. As the old single toilet cubicles were too small they have turned two cubicles into one which had they decided to keep both toilets in there would have been ideal for families instead it just makes the queue that bit longer.
I felt that signage around the park could be improved, both with ride signage making a spotting ride names from a distance easier and inviting. Although personally with no sign posts pointing to the direction to toilets, gift shops, food outlets and rides you did have to rely on your map reading skills to navigate around the park. (Pleasurewood Hills are planning on upgrading and improving the current signage issues for the 2014 season)
Food and Drink
We opted to take a picnic with us to the park and found ample picnic tables around the kiddies zone. With plenty of bins and a cafe close by it was nice to be able to sit down and enjoy some food for half an hour.
We did pass a couple of food places with a large drink, burger an fries costing £6.00 which is about what you would expect to pay.
